They decide to give him repeated head trauma instead of killing him in an attempt to make him a vegetable. Sean escapes after enduring weeks of torture, goes to the homeless shelter where the murdered accountants beautiful wife volunteers and gains her trust.
The unsuspecting wife, Susan takes Sean into her home while he heals, unaware that he is responsible for murdering her husband. Hell-bent on revenge Sean’s real quest is to payback the thugs that shafted him.
I really liked this film although the wife taking a strange homeless guy into her home with her daughter and all seemed way too far-fetched. Either that or she was just plain stupid and desperate.
I think that might just have been an excuse for them to show Kari Wuhrer naked. However, it was the most unlikely place for the dude to be hanging out, I’m sure his rivals would have never thought to look for him there. The constant beatings that Sean took are just grueling. His head looked like a misshapen potato by the time they were done. A cool revenge flick and a fun watch.
